    Sorry to start another rain thread, but I've had it! I haven't had a bike in @ 15 years(have had my license for 30 years). I bought my V Star custom in May, and to say the least, the weather has sucked since then. I just checked, and for June, we have had 22 days of precipitation! 22 out of 30! I swear, babies are going to start being born with webbed feet!
    I've decided that if I'm going to ride, it will have to be in the rain. No rain suit yet, so I carry an extra pair of jeans to change into when I get to work. I LOVE meeting an 18 wheeler! That spray of wind and water is awesome!
    How has the weather been where you all are?

    2 weeks of over 100 degrees with heat index of 105 - 110. Too hot to ride.

    Same here in mass.Bought a new raider in may and 32 of the last 39 days they say it has rained.Today it is so foggy you can't see 100 yards in front of you and a constant mist. It Sucks!! I love to ride and temperature doesnt bother me, but I just hate to ride in the rain.Should have bought a boat.

    Well, I have a boat and haven't used it in so long I don't know if it will float anymore. Rain is not the big problem down here. It is finding time to ride. Rain here in SW Georgia lately hasn't been just a drizzle, it has been down pours along with lots of lightening. Heat also has been a problem with the heat index up around 105-114 degrees. Work and family is really what keeps us off the bikes the most though. Someone always has plans for us that do not include being able to ride. So, when we are off work due (more often than not) the truck in the shop, we do not tell anyone in hopes of getting some riding time in.

    Well I hope it dries up for you soon. The riding season in Maine is only from June 1st to July 10th. It's snow and cold weather otherwise.

    I remember the last of April thru the first half of May, we went like 19 days straight with RAIN. I was so sick of the rain. Now we are averaging real close to 100° with heat indexes of 105° to 110°. I thought we had enough rain to last for 2 years, but now I am having to water my tomato plants everyday! Its OK though....nothin in the world like a homegrown tomater!

    Basically, I dont know which is worse...riding in the rain, or riding in the heat! Either way you end up wet!

    We have an old saying here: "Maine has 2 seasons, winter and the 4th of July"
